I may have mentioned this before, but I was once at a reading (*adjusts scarf*) where James Franco read a short story, and much as I wanted him to suck because he’s a handsome movie star, he was actually really good and I ended up having to give Schadenfreude Sloth mouth to mouth.  Anyway, Franco trashes a studio apartment in this promo for the next Wholphin DVD.  The promo is an internet-friendly 51 seconds, and it’s apparently part of a 32-minute film directed by Dave Eggers called The Room Before and AfterWholphin is the DVD companion to the McSweeney’s literary quarterly, and they do some fun stuff like “Patton Oswalt stares at the camera for four or five minutes.”  If you’ve never heard of Wholphin, it’s probably because you didn’t go to an expensive enough liberal arts college. The other baristas don’t even respect you, man.
